I retired in December 2019 from my employer of 27 years a Swiss machine manufacturer.
I was employed in the industrial laser division as the Installation Project Manager for UK and Ireland.
My background was in Electronic and Electrical systems.
I’ve always interested in science and related subjects but about 10 years ago decided to take astronomy more seriously and joined YAS.
and a bit about the talk
With regard to The future of Space tourism, I looked into it and became really quite interested and as such did some digging which enabled me to put together the presentation.
Basically, I looked at what’s possible now, midterm and we’ll into the future, it’s based on some know facts and some speculation about the future, along with a few considerations that would need to be overcome to make things possible.
A little tongue in cheek towards the end, but does have some big interesting numbers I think, no heavy maths or anything like that.
Suitable for all ages with some nice pictures and a couple of small videos.
